Question Installing Mandrake 8.1 on 2000 machine when primary partition is full.

I have been a computer tech for 8 years (yup windows) and I am new to linux. My question is .... is it possible to load linux on my secondary partition (d: drive) if my primary is full. And how do I do it. Will it destroy win 2000. I'm trying to migrate my info over slowly. Thanks!

i wouldn't use up all of the D: drive... windows does not operate very well when out of disk space..
